Ok , long story short, had a doctor put me in a walking cast without giving me a heel lift for my other leg. threw sacro iliac joint out of alignment and had pain in lower back when running. went to a PT did perscribed exercises and pain went away. pain returned off and on and went away when i did the exercises.
came back in september, localized to right over my sacroiliac joint on right side and hasnt gone away. went to a doctor and he said they need to do an MRI to know for sure, but could be herniated disk or pinched nerve. but b/c i am going into the Air Force as navigator i cant do it till im in (aug 2005) or i wont comission.
from an athletic injuries class i took my symptoms resemble that of piriformis syndrome and are nothing like that of a herniated disk, which is what the doctor said it could be.
I’m 22 w/ back problems that could ruin my Air Force career. and the doctor said i cant squat any more! I’m currently taking using cold packs(hot in 3 days), aleve, and doing light exercises that my athletic injuries book recomends for piriformis syndrome. I was hoping i could get some support from t-nation. Prayers if your the praying type, advice. anything.
